About This Plant

A reseeding wildflower. Appearing in winter as a distinct lettuce-like rosette of fuzzy, deeply lobed leaves, Lindheimer’s daisy begins growing swiftly in February. Blooms appear in March and continue throughout spring, with some of the first yellow-ray flowers of the year. Watch for it along roadways along with bluebonnets and Indian paintbrush. It can be easily grown in mulched garden beds as well.

Origins: South-central U.S.


Seed can be collected in May. Sow or scatter seed on bare soil in non-turf areas in November. Rosettes will grow slowly over winter, and quickly after February. The bloom season often lasts until summer. Once established, plants will reseed freely.

A great wildflower for garden beds, growing and reseeding easily in a wide variety of conditions.
